"On the education of women largely depends the future of society.”
The Mount consistently searches for ways to prepare our students to be 21st century citizens. We desire to prepare our students to be successful in a world that has become digital and global. We desire to do this without surrendering our values and priorities, yet challenging our students to embrace new technologies and learning opportunities.
Our students are being empowered to use technology to explore, create, and innovate. Classrooms are becoming centers of collaboration where students learn to work together to be creative problem solvers. The world is changing at a rapid pace, and so must education.
These are the reasons why our students work on iPads in the classroom. The Mount maintains a powerful wireless network with a high bandwidth that allows our students to work wirelessly simultaneously and seamlessly. We continue to invest in maintaining a strong network that allows our students to work collaboratively.
All students and parents/guardians must sign the school-wide Acceptable Use Policy available on the Student and Parent Portals and at the left. All students must sign the Student iPad Pledge which is a separate document from the Acceptable Use Policy that deals directly with the use of the iPad.
Linked here is a current list of required applications. We have set a limit of $100.00 per year, per student, for the purchase of apps. MOST EDUCATIONAL APPS ARE FREE. Once you purchase an app, it is yours. The Mount will put safeguards in place in order to make sure that all departments stay within the established limit. Many of the apps will be used for 4 years.
